The first European settlers to set foot on what is now Oregon sailed here when they were coming to America in search of a northwest passage. Many people have heard of the Oregon Trail which started when settlers traveled to the area in wagons in the 1840s. they followed the missionaries that had migrated there in the 1830s. People that are not familiar with the history of the Oregon trail but have heard of it may be more familiar with the well known computer game that is actually based on the lives of settlers moving out west. Oregon was the 33rd state to become part of the Union in 1859.
